Game Review: Go Fish! (Mobile – Free to Play)

Go Fish is is a very simple but addictive free to play game with one fatal flaw that makes it nearly unplayable. The ads. Every two turns it’s an ad and turns are quick so you’re looking at an ad every 10-15 seconds.

This review is for version 1.1.0.

Go Fish 2

Cast your line and try to catch as many fish as you can by moving the hook back and forth as it makes its way back up. The fish you catch is converted into money which is then used to upgrade three categories.

The first is your net size which allows you to carry more fish. The second is depth which sees you line going deeper where more unusual and rare fish swim and the third is offline earnings.

Go Fish 3

Catch fish, get money and upgrade your gear to catch more fish and earn even more money. Repeat and carry on. Addictive and the inclusion of a trophy room where you can see what fish you’ve caught is a nice touch. However there are no additional modes, it’s this and this alone which makes the amount of ads shockingly unreasonable.

However, you can remove ads for a cost. What are you thinking? £2.99? £1.99? Those are the standard prices, right? For a game with such light content anything more would be pure greed wouldn’t it? Well, amazingly Go Fish requires £3.99 to remove ads. This is the first time I’ve seen a free to play game come with this price point for the removal of ads.

Go Fish 4

What can you even say? You don’t need me to tell you that there is no way that Go Fish gives you any good reason to spend this kind of money. There are hundreds of games that cost less and give you hours and hours of content. Addictive gameplay or not, the arrogance and greed of the developer Kawalee is all anyone is going to remember at the end.
